Toning Pads Or Sheet Masks – What’s Better?

For as long as we can remember, sheet masks have been a staple in K-beauty. Lately, however, a new star has emerged in the industry – and the hearts of K-beauty enthusiasts: toning pads!

Thanks to how simple they are to use and customize, toning pads have become a multi-maskers dream and a mainstay in K-beauty.

But what distinguishes these pads from sheet masks? Let’s find out!

Pads that are really thin  ideal for toning, masking, AND snacking!


What Are Toning Pads, Really?

Toning pads are exactly what you think, toners but as pads! Toner pads are cotton pads soaked in toner designed to hydrate and micro exfoliate. Toning pads fit perfectly after cleansing to help remove any excess dirt or oil left in your pores. Ultimately, toner pads are great for helping to smoothen out your skin, and they are super convenient for mornings where you are busy and on the move!



For me, the best part about toning pads is how easy they are to apply and how you can use them to target specific areas. You can use as many pads as you need, simply take them out and place them on your forehead, cheeks, chin, and wherever else you want. Toning pads are thin and designed to sit nicely on your skin, and you can leave the pads chilling on your face while you get your hair done, pack your bags for the day or even have a quick breakfast. Plus, their reasonable pricing has me sold! Toner pads like the Cosrx Full Synergy Pads offer so much for so little! These pads are ultra-thin, so they’ll stick to your skin comfortably for patch masking to smooth skin texture while balancing skin. It contains 84% of Triple Propolis Extract that provides the benefits of both toner and serum. This toner pad focuses on an upgraded moisturizing effect with three different kinds of propolis extract, which keeps skin hydrated for up to 24 hours without leaving a greasy finish.


And Sheet Masks?

If you are a skincare enthusiast, you are familiar with sheet masks. Sheet masks are synonymous with self-care and a key feature of a fun girls’ night out. Typically, sheet masks are face-shaped and made from thin cloth pieces soaked in serums and infused with ingredients that stay on your skin and are not washed away. Sheet masks are super powerful for something so thin and light. They are a great source of hydration and help to soften your skin. They also work great for smoothening out your skin and evening your skin tone, leaving your skin looking radiantly healthy.


Like toning pads, sheet masks are easy to use. All you need to do is lay the sheet out on your clean face correctly – there are holes designed for your eyes, nose, and mouth, and let the mask get to work. So you can enjoy a glass of wine or catch up on your favorite shows while you pamper your skin.


Are Toning Pads Replacing Sheet Masks?

Well, yes and no! Sheet masks are not going out of style anytime soon. Few things beat the sensation of a sheet mask against our skin and how you can just zone out and allow the luscious essences work their magic.

However, the emergence of toning pads is admittedly giving the masking market a much-needed upgrade. Toner pads are becoming increasingly popular because of how simple they are to use and how you can tailor them to fit your skin’s needs.


Which Is The Better Option For My Skin?

I am just as fond of a nice sheet mask as I am of toning pads. Both skincare staples are suitable for various occasions and will complement your existing lifestyle perfectly! Pick up some sheet mask favorites from Abib or Innisfree for a full self-care routine. If you are craving a quick pick-me-up in the mornings, dab a few pads from The Cosrx Full-Fit Propolis Synergy Pads on your cheeks to leave the house with rejuvenated, glowing skin. So really, the choice is yours, and who says you can’t have both?
